Peggy's Pizza: Part 39 of 2023

Submitted by Bethany on Mon, 10/16/2023 - 14:19

Someone posted a meme this week that brought back fall memories from high school. When my friends and I would be driving around in the country, we would look for ‘wooly worms’. We believed they could predict what the coming winter was to be like.  If you want to learn more about the tradition (and whether or not it works!) you can click here.

I have not seen any ‘wooly worms’ in a long time, so I have no idea what to expect…Lol! So do tell, what are your ways of predicting the weather long term?

On Monday we had a bonus pizza…

Couldn’t let this day go by without celebrating: International Beer and Pizza Day…a thin crispy crust topped with red sauce, Parmesan, pepperoni, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, red onion and mozzarella then garnished with a chiffonade of fresh basil.

Another Bonus Pizza Day on Wednesday: We had to celebrate National Sausage Pizza Day… a thin crispy crust topped with red sauce, Parmesan, provolone, ground Italian sausage, slices of grilled hot Italian sausage links, onion, green & red peppers and mozzarella.

A chilly Chili Thursday: Matthew tried a new chili recipe… Pumpkin Chili with ground turkey then served with Fritos, cheddar cheese, sour cream and green onions.

Friday Pieday: A traditional recipe from peasants of the Campania region who used the leftovers from the preparation of daily bread. Pizza nel Ruoto (in the round)…one topped with red cherry tomatoes, fresh oregano, sea salt & mozzarella; the other with yellow cherry tomatoes, fresh oregano, sea salt and provolone then both drizzled with olive oil.

Matthew (aka Pizza Dude) and friends had a great time at a Halloween dance on Friday…

And on Sunday, Matthew completed the Des Moines Marathon-5K...And since he was hungry afterward we ate out at a restaurant called The Breakfast Club. These loaded hashbrowns called the Cowboy Killer were insane! You know it's a lot of food when Matthew can't even finish it! 

Till next week,
